    I don’t even listen to or care for rap, but I loved, loved ‘long live the chief’. That’s the best video I’ve seen in a long while. The red, black, white visual contrast was brilliantly done. I was enthralled. I even know some lyrics. Long Live Chief Jidenna! Noisemakers like Kanye West should go and rest. Jidenna’s reign has begun!
